WOW, a top ten! And finally I got a PB almost two years after... Thanks everybody for comments and votes.

I discovered this place some months ago (in august) and took a snap to remember it for the correct challenge. And when I saw the framing one realized this was the challenge for this place.

I made the shot thanks to the knowledge I have learned on strobist. I used a flash bounging on the roof and with a gobo to prevent flare.Well, I was using two flases, but in this shot one failed, you can see it under the seat of my model (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' imagine74). I was a real lucky, because is much better than the ones with the other flash because I didn't realized till later it was visible.
What I did was overpower ambient light with the flash to get a more dark sea and sky than it really was and to get some details on the model.
Then some levels and color enhancements on Lightroom and sharpen and resize in PS.

Wow,
congrats to your new PB and a top 10.
IT as a beautiful warm tone, enhanced by the warm colors of the wood.

Excellent work. Very good framing, that doesn't overpower the subject. I hope this does well.

Really fantastic. I get this really voyeuristic vibe but also a feel that I know this woman. The colors are fantastic, and you really captured an emotion. Excellent job
